Kesari came awesome. Your measurement is perfectly good & easy. Thanks for the perfect kesari.
I always struggled with getting the consistency of the kesari right – always turned out lumpy-then i tried your method and it was miraculous-nailed it finally! thanks
I m a huge fan of urs. I love ur pictoral presentation. Everyy dish i make is refered ro u first then i get the confidence. Kesari was my weak dish i cld never get it right. I tried ur method and it was a success. Thank you.
Thank u so much, Padhu for this yet another perfect recipe by you. I was having about 30 guests at home for my son's birthday & needed a simple & quick recipe for a sweet as I was running out of time. I took the courage to double the quantity of each of these measurements & even then my dish came out really well. Once again, thank u soooo soooo much for providing such simple, quick and easy recipes with such accurate measurements.
Thanks for teaching me padhu
Tried this today for tamil new year. came out very well. Thanks much for posting this.
Hi padhu mam,

Hi Padhu madam
I am follower of your blog. I use your blog based recipe as my template for most dishes I make. I thought sweets are not my genre but this recipe was made in a jiffy and I got positive comments on the preparation too.
Thank you mam
Hello aunty you are my guru in cooking… whatever I would like to prepare the one and only website which I search is padhuskitchen…lovely page with mouthwatering recipes…thank you so much for all your receipes aunty…
I tried making Rava kesari. It came out very well. It was very tasty. But I tried for the kesari colour which I didn't get. So the kesari made was without colour. Nowadays whatever I would like to prepare the one and only website which I search is padhuskitchen. Now off late very recently I came to know about your website. great good wok. keep t up.
It's quite sometime that i am following you. Your recipes are awesome and your steps are very accurate. I had an uninvited guest today and made rava kesari. it came out really delicious.
I have a pic of it. not sure how to attach it here. I didnt add any colourant. It was a white kesari
Kesari came out very well . The measurement were perfect.
Thanks for the recipe
The kesari came out very well
An ardent fan of your blog…kesari came out perfect. I cld reduce a tablespoon of ghee perhaps next time….even managed to mould this with a cup! Wish i cld share this pic with u

Cup means how much
I use Standard measuring cup for all my recipes. It is available in all departmental stores.
1 cup = 200 ml
I am a big fan of you for the recipes.
Thanks for posting,
Thank you very much. Quick recipe and helped me get the Kesari done in about 30 minutes. Much appreciated!
This is a great recipe. Thanks much. Initially I was skeptical about the ghee and sugar ratio but it was perfect..
